I have a Studiologic sustain pedal with a switch to invert the polarity, nonetheless I still have the same problem. In fact, when I switch the polarity on the pedal, the sustain is always on, with the pedal pressed and not pressed. I tried also to solder the wires of the pedal in the inverted position but nothing changes. Conclusion: I must buy a Roland sustain pedal? Or there are some key combination to change the polarity of the sustain pedal on the keyboard?

Unless you find something written in the owner's manual that suggests otherwise, I would recommend using a Roland pedal. Kind reards, James x. Employed by Kawai Japanhowever the opinions I express are my own. Joined: Jan I also use UR I can see the sustain pedal in the midi monitor but it's not recorded and I can't hear it.
I never have problems with cubase and as a piano player I can not use Studio One. It's very frustrading. Toggle navigation. Questions Hot!
Sustain Pedal Not Recording No issues when trying same plugins in FL Studio or Ableton. When a single track is armed and monitoring I can't record sustain at all normally.
Only workaround I found was to duplicate the track, have one track to monitor input the other to record the midi data. This is simple midi recording, been having this issue for months. I have reinstalled Studio One, even reinstalled Windows 10 - Still no luck. Love the program but this is beyond frustrating and definitely why I haven't upgraded further.
Studio One 3. Thank you. Please log in or register to answer this question. I have the same problem with sustain pedal and Studio One 4. Please help!
New user here. Sat down for my first recording session with Studio 4. What a nightmare. Tried all the unchecking boxes malarky but changes nothing. Running on Mac OSX I have solved my issue with strange sustain behaviour when recording by selecting midi channel one as opposed to all which I think is the default setting in the Edit Device dialogue box.
Hope that this helps someone!Forums Quick Links. Members Quick Links. NI Community Forum. Messages: Last edited: May 7, DiastroFeb 28, Messages: 2. I've been using my Komplete Kontrol S61 for a few weeks now, with the latest firmware, and there seems to be issues with the sustain pedal. I've tried both Ensoniq and Kurzweil pedals, and both work perfectly on other keyboards, but with the S61 it is hit and miss.
This is very frustrating when playing, especially when I spend so much time using piano patches. I know there is nothing wrong with the pedals, and suspect it isn't a hardware issue with the S61, either—but maybe something with the firmware or drivers. Messages: 8. I too am having trouble with the sustain pedal. I'm using an M-Audio SP 2 pedal. Very glitchy. Sometimes it won't let go of the sustain.
Sometimes it just triggers odd. I have all of the updates, since I just bought everything last week. KealaKCMar 16, I'm gonna go ahead and give this a bump.There are many similarities between the capabilities of the various controller groups.
But there are also some very important distinctions, which mostly break down along the lines of controller types. For example, in Internal mode the assignment options are the same for the fader knobs and the encoders which are very knob-like.
Another set of choices is shared by the faders, the wheels and the expression pedal.
So we'll look at each controller type one at a time. One such grouping of similar controller types includes the buttons under the faders, the Transport buttons and the sustain pedal, since they have identical assignment options they're all basically switches.
This article will describe what the fader buttons can do, but the information also applies to the Transport buttons and the sustain pedal. But unlike many buttons you will find elsewhere, these are capable of much more than simply turning something on or off!
Let's take a moment to explore the possibilities. First, to edit the fader button settings Panorama needs to be in the Control Edit section: Press the Internal button to put Panorama in Internal mode Press Menu button 5 M5currently labeled 'Setup' Note: the 'Setup' menu can be accessed from any page where you see the word 'Setup' on M5. From this point onward the instructions would be the same for those pages. Use the data encoder to scroll through the pop-up menu and select 'Control Edit' Press M5 Enter Press one of the nine fader buttons to the left of the display.
You should see something like this:. Control Edit: Buttons and the sustain pedal There are many similarities between the capabilities of the various controller groups. We'll explain these parameters one at at time. Applications abound: a bass note or a drum loop can be triggered at one velocity while the button is held and retriggered at another velocity when the button is released, for example.
But you may be wondering, "If both actions will send Note On messages, how do you make the loop stop? Then whether you press or release the second button it will send a Note Off message to that MIDI note number and shut it off.
Better yet, you could set the second button to Note toggle. See below! Let's use the same example from above so the contrast between the Message Types of Note and Note toggle is clear. A bass note or a drum loop can be triggered by the button when Note toggle is selected. When the button is first pressed it sends a MIDI Note message at one velocity, and when the button is released nothing happens.
This can free up a hand because you don't have to keep pressing the button to sustain the note. You should see something like this: The right half of the display shows which fader button was pressed the first one, in this case. You can tell which was pressed by the red circle around the outside the button graphic.
Turning the data encoder while this parameter is highlighted will select a new Message Type. Pitch Bend : This lets you send Pitch Bend messages from a button. You could use this to set up a 'trill', for example, with a press value of and a release value of 64 center, or no pitch bend. Fixed Velocity : This parameter is used in conjunction with the Keyboard or the Pads when their velocity curves are set to Fixed.
A press of the selected button will set the Fixed velocity value for the selected Target to that of the Press parameter. One or more buttons can be set to various velocity values so you can increase or decrease the velocity output of all keys or pads at once.
Use the Target parameter to choose whether to control the Keys or Pads. See the article ' Controlling the fixed velocity value of the keyboard or Pads ' for more information. Note : You can trigger a particular sample or a loop by using the Note feature and setting the proper MIDI note number value in the Note field. With the default settings, a Note On message will be sent when the button is pressed and a Note Off command will be sent when the button is released; this shuts off the note that was triggered when the button was pressed.
But both the Press and Release parameters are capable of either action: When set to 0, either action will send a Note Off command. When set to a value greater than zero, either action will send a Note On command at a MIDI velocity determined by the selected value.
Note toggle : Similar to the Note setting described above: You can trigger a particular sample or a loop by using the Note toggle feature and setting the proper MIDI note number value in the Note field.Forum Rules. Remember Me? Results 1 to 1 of 1. Hello all. Hoping I can get some feedback on this issue that has been tearing away at my soul. I'm a new user of Ableton Live and have been having a problem with my midi keyboard: The sustain pedal will not work!
The problem in detail is as such: When the pedal is pressed down, I receive the yellow blinking lights indicating that the signal is being received, but nothing happens as far as sustain when playing in ableton. I've tried switching to various sounds such as truepiano, the default grand piano sound, and of course tried it on operator. Still nothing. If anyone has suggestions on how to try fixing this it would be appreciated. I've read various posts on this and have not been able to find a solution to the problem.
I will be checking this post with regularity, so if I have not included some vital information needed for troubleshooting on this, please do not hesitate to ask for it. Thank you in advance and happy new year!
